Property description

RUSTIC CABIN IN HISTORIC IDAHO SPRINGS 2BD/1BA is located in historic landmark area of Idaho Springs where Colorado Gold Rush began over 150 years ago. It is a real miner's cabin built here during Colorado Gold Rush days. The cabin offers mountain/hill views and a great location. Walk to historic district, local restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream shop, local museums, rec center and library. The cabin is close to local attraction and activities, including several whitewater rafting companies, and Loveland Ski Resort.

The cabin has two private bedrooms furnished with a queen size bed each, a living room with and a full/queen size futon, full kitchen, a breakfast area and a full bathroom. There is a high efficiency washer and dryer (please use HE detergent only).

Enjoy great skiing in the winter. We are only 10 min to Loveland Ski Resort.

Take exciting whitewater rafting trips in the summer. You do not need to drive anywhere: there are at least five white water rafting companies right here on Clear Creek!

The cabin is only 30 miles to DENVER downtown if you crave amenities of a big city. If you do not feel like driving, take a walk to National Historic District of Idaho Springs with great shopping, dining and sightseeing.

*Visit Historic ARGO Gold Mine & Mill; take 'All Aboard!' Journey back in time with a ride on one of Colorado's great narrow gauge railroads. Come and be astounded by the Devil's Gate High Bridge, the beautiful Rocky Mountain views and the engineering marvel that is the Georgetown Loop!

*Pamper yourself with a therapeutic and relaxing treatment at Indian Hot Springs. Enjoy hot mineral springs pool and geothermal cave baths once shared by the Ute and Arapahoe Indians. Enjoy a massage or just relax in our hot springs mineral waters, which have been rated as one of the top ten mineral hot springs in the world. It is truly a unique and unforgettable spa experience.

*The Mount Evans Scenic Byway is America's highest paved automobile road and offers many outdoor activities from sightseeing and bicycling to hiking and fishing. Mount Evans is the road into the sky. Drive from 8700 feet at Idaho Spring where you turn of Interstate 70 to 14,240 feet to the summit and you will pass through three life zones, passing ancient trees, lakes and forest to the land above timberline. It can be 90 degrees in Denver and 40 degrees at the top of Mount Evans. Mountain Goats and Bighorn Sheep will great you as you climb to the top of the world.

*Take a tour of our local microbrewery (Tommyknocker Mountain Brewery and Pub) to learn how small batches of specialty beers are crafted. Ask your server to explain the legend of the Tommyknocker and how these spirits were active in Clear Creek's gold mining history.

The property is located right in the very heart of Front Range area attractions. Most are 3-15 minutes away. You will find more information and visitor guides in the house.

We will be happy to provide any additional information and links to view more pictures of the property and area attractions...
